air shocks - how do i inflate them?
so i got this jamis dakar 29 with rock shox tora air. Don't have a shock pump and i've tried to use compressors at gas stations to fill in the shocks at the recommended pressure - 150PSI. Gas station compressors don't deliver this kind of pressure and none of the hand pumps i have tried worked either. I am currently in mozambique and have ordered a shock pump from the states but that will take a while. Two questions meanwhile:
1. If i don't mind the extra beating in my hands is it safe to ride with the shocks locked at all times? and by safe i mean safe for the shocks - i am just worried that if i go downhill on a trail and hit a few rocks the shocks will be ruined....
2. Is there any way i can improvise and get some air in the shocks with basic tools - regular pumps, compressors etc?
